B807. Futagoyama Norisuke Ko by NBTHK
B807. Futagoyama Norisuke Ko by the Nagoya Branch of the NBTHK. 1972. Hardbound, the slipcase is missing, 8 1/2 x 12″, 122 pages in Japanese. Norisuke was a Late Edo tsuba artist who, along with his 2nd generation and their students, were responsible for many Yagyu and other famous school tsuba that weren’t really by the Yagyu and the other schools. He was a fine artist who has been unfairly painted as a forger. Many great tsuba are pictured in black & white, and you get drawings and rubbings also. Both generations and the students are included.
Corners are gently bumped; otherwise all is fine. 2 pounds, 3 ounces. Usually $120; without the slipcase yours for $95.
